This week, Michelle Stafford will become more a part of the General Hospital canvas as Nina wakes up from her coma and then begins the road to reclaiming her life and reconnecting with those she loves and those who have wronged her! Just how will it all play out?
Stafford spoke with noted soap journalist and columnist Carolyn Hinsey in a new interview out today about her arrival onto the Port Charles scene, where she talks about being the new kid on the block, working with Kelly Monaco (Sam) and Michael Easton (Silas) and working with head scribe Ron Carlivati and executive producer Frank Valentini to make Nina come to life! Here are a few excerpts below!
Michelle on being a hit character on one soap (Y&R’s Phyllis) and then coming to another soap and creating a new character and the challenge of it: “Sometimes an actor makes a splash on one show and then comes onto a new show expecting they’re going to make another splash. But you have to start each new job anew. I’m the new kid on the block. I am at GH to aid story.”
Michelle on what are her thoughts on working with Michael Easton: “Amazing. I took his parking place one day and I want to publicly apologize for that. They gave me his spot; I think they just saw the ‘M.’ He’s really smart. He’s a writer himself… God, there’s so much I want to say about our conversations but if I tell you it will give away the character. There’s so little I can say.”
Michelle on the story with Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Silas: “It’s OUR story, not my story. It’s important that they kick ass and I kick ass. I already told you about Michael, and Kelly is amazing. I really like my scenes with her. I haven’t seen them yet. I hope they’re good.”
